Calling Dr. Love

Kiss



--------------------

Transcribed by Emil Ortenmark, emil@kissasylum.com
Tuned down 1/2-step
Comments: Kind of a cluttered track this. The song is good but did they have
to use all those guitars? The main riff, Rhy. Fig 1, is played by two guitars,
one left and one right. Then Rhy. Fig 2 comes in with a centered guitar far
back in the mix. Just in time for the climax of the second verse, the fourth
guitar makes its appearance. And that¥s not counting fills (Ace does some
seriously sick bends on this track, he even uses the tuning peg at one point).
The solo is good but sits atop some serious overkill. Three guitars are
playing rhytym here which makes the solo a little bit hard to make out at
times. And, as I¥ve said before, this album is Ace¥s highpoint and he rips
a good one here. Not as fast as MAKIN¥ LOVE and a little rough around the
edges, this is still something to aspire to.
